Finally got the chance to try macro using a reverse ring (mount to reversed lens)

1. Using Tokina 28/2.8 @ f8


2. Using Takumar 28/3.5 @ f8


PP: downsized with a little bit of sharpening on both images.

I bet it is hard to find the focus point!

Good work.

With the 5D's viewfinder, it's quite manageable - unlike the extreme macro setup (tele+reversed lens) which can really hurt my eyes :D

Greater dof? When using a reversed lens on a tele? Nuh-uh, that's some seriously difficult dof to increase, as simply decreasing aperture doesn't give you more dof (as such)
